There's nothing more British than apples, so make sure you take advantage of the fabulous variety on offer. If you're very lucky you may have an apple tree groaning with fruit waiting to be scrumped for your fruit bowl, but if not, for maximum flavour opt for British varieties in the supermarket. Around about now the Orange Pippin should be coming in to its prime, as will the British Braeburn (so much better tastier than the imported variety), the Blenheim Orange and the Newton Wonder. Eating apples like these sliced on top of your brekky are a delicious way to add some healthy crunch to your cereal, but if you prefer your toppings hot, go for a Bramley, which makes a fabulous compote or jam.
